||European Jewish girl's name Chule by Jonquil
Never heard of that name. So I asked my Old Testament Hebrew dictionary.
CHOL ist the Hebrew word for "sand", but that doesn't seem to make much sense.
There is a verb CHUL that means "to dance" (Judges 21.21).
There is another verb CHIL (the vowels I and U are often interchangeable), meaning "to be strong, succeed."
There is a Yiddish verb CHULJEN, "to romp."
